Bollywood actress Mrunal Thakur has admitted that 2019 was a dream year for her. The actor won hearts with her performance in Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 which was a biopic based on the life of math genius Anand Kumar. She was also a part of cop drama alongside John Abraham titled Batla House. She confessed in an interview that it is still unbelievable that it has been also a year since she shot for both the films.
The actor has two sports dramas in her kitty for this year, the first one is Shahid Kapoor's Jersey which is the official remake of Nani’s Telugu hit of the same name. Talking about Kapoor, she said that he is a sweetheart and is always supportive. She also added that since she has seen the original, she is often consulted by the director for inputs on the set now.
The Gowtam Tinnanuri directorial follows the life of a retired cricketer who is trying to make it to the national team from his early 20s to mid-30s. Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur play parents to a young boy and she is totally unfazed by playing a mother. Talking about this, she said that she has met girls who had kids in their early 20s and shared that even she played a mother of two in a commercial when she was 18 and said that it is all just acting.
The actor's second sports drama is Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Toofan alongside Farhan Akhtar. Mrunal Thakur plays Akhtar's ladylove in the film. The film follows the life of a national-level boxer played by Farhan Akhtar. Mrunal revealed that they shot most of the film in Mumbai in one go so that the flow would not break. Acknowledging the challenge of juggling Toofan and Jersey, she said that the challenge was to make both the characters distinctly different.
